Maggots commented on Jack Tretton Wishes Nintendo Every Success Wit...:
what a jerk
Maggots commented on Rumour: Square Enix Triple-A Title Being Porte...:
Kingdom Hearts HD remix? ... would be nice... after that .. . My money is on tomb raider... i might actually get that one.
Maggots commented on Ever Wondered How Your 3DS Battery Life Compar...:
i don't necessarily think this is a TRUE and Valid test for battery life because as you play the processor is experienceing all sorts of work loads... especially the PSP with it's moving parts if you were actually playing a game and it constantly had to load levels and characters it would have died much sooner than it did... just playing the title screen doesn't really put these consoles to the real world tests that more accurately depict an average gaming session. ...
Maggots commented on Wii U Memory Can be Easily Expanded With USB H...:
@cyphid the only thing with a solid state in this situation is the bottle neck of USB 2.0 ... SSD's can have speeds from 300-500MB/s ... attaching that to a 30-40MB/s USB 2.0 would sure be sad for that poor SSD just waiting to scream on a nice SATA 3 port. in essence the performance would be the same as a slow hard drive ... HAHA that is funny that we both talked about newegg... I love that place!
@DrSlump It really matters not as most hard drives top out at around 60-80 MB per second... even with USB 2.0's transfer speedsit should be plenty fast to stream games off of it...
as far as other options go... my buddy just bought on new egg (i think ) a 128GB SDXC card for $90 and I'm willing to bet they'll be cheaper on black friday deals in november... couple that with the 32GB Wii U and you'll have a pretty 160GB ... as much as the PS3 slim I have! plenty of space for games and junk!...
funny thing is Wii U discs run at 22MB/s ... and that's apparently plenty fast to stream data for games (360 and PS3 disc speeds are much slower---360′s 15.85 MB/s (DVD) and the PS3′s 9MB/s (Blu-ray))... USB 2.0 has a transfer speed of about 34MB/s... and like I said Hard drives are about 60-80MB/s depending on RPMs... that SD card I talked about had a write speed of 37MB/s, and a read speed of 45MB/s (granted... nintendo's DS readers may cap out at a certain speed... so performance boost may be negligible ... however very comparable to every other component on this system...
It's just nice to know all your options... as you see I have considered all of these for a long time now haha!!
also here's a nifty rundown of storage options and data rates...
Maggots commented on 3DS Patent Can Tell When You've Returned Home:
Sounds like this COULD be happening!! that would be awesome!! http://nintendoconnect.com/2012/05/19/imagining-street-pass-on-the-wii-u/
Maggots commented on MDK2 Dev Will Never Develop for Nintendo Again:
I don't think crappily porting a dreamcast game to wii ware counts as "developing" for a nintendo system
Maggots commented on Review: Pandora's Tower (Wii):
@Alienfish Xenoblade is worth a purchase... wonderful game
Maggots commented on The U.S. Sales Results are in for Nintendo:
I wouldn't release any figures if I were sony either...
Maggots commented on Amoebattle's Quarantine Period is Nearly Over:
dang it... another cool looking game that I'm not going to buy because it wasn't developed for the 3DS... if i were a developer and i knew the 3DS was releasing i would instantly begin development for it... regardless of what stage of production i was in
Maggots commented on Nintendo Leaves BAFTA Empty-Handed:
This sickens me... the world likes crap... ... they like terrible things... that's why there's so many SAW movies... I have lost my faith in human kind...
Maggots commented on Nintendo Download: 15th March 2012 (North Amer...:
@dark-insanity More like a silly Groose ... amirite? huh guys?...
@CorusFace I'm your worst nightmare... it's alright though... i don't even drink coke... ... I'll take a Dr. Pepper though...
@TeeJay could be we posted at the same time... >.>
@CorusFace JINX you owe me a coke
HAHAHA! that sega pic was from this website ... http://nintendoconnect.com/2012/02/21/nintendo-confirms-game-gear-games-on-3ds-virtual-console-service/
Maggots commented on Havok Physics and Animation to Power Wii U Games:
@V8_Ninja sounds like Nintendo is Paying for developers to use these tools... sounds like a sweet deal for those wanting to develop for Wii U and save some money... !
these engines are fully programmable so if you don't like the way things fall or rag doll physics... its because the developers didn't program it right... not because that's just how the engine is...
Maggots commented on Talking Point: The Inevitability of Digital Re...:
how about both? ... Buy the Box edish... get a free download version... so you can collect your boxes and just use the download version... you are basically paying for a license anyway... like with blizzard... I bought starcraft II boxed... but downloaded it onto all of my computers that I own... THAT is what nintendo should do...
Maggots commented on Dead or Alive: Dimensions Demo Punches Europe ...:
I absolutely love this game... one it was the first game to utilize all of the major functions of the 3DS... and you can get it for $20 now... I had SSIV and this ... and i traded in SSIV ... Dead or alive Dimensions was way more fun... there is a lot more to do as well ... with play coins and daily spot pass "DLC" ... it was a way better, well put together experience where as street fighter was just... empty...
Maggots commented on Feature: Nintendo’s Biggest Blunders:
@Lordlz hahaha!!!! you mean like every system?
Maggots commented on See Rockstar and Miyamoto's Unreleased N64 Pro...:
Maggots commented on Review: Everdrive 64:
$175? I could buy another 3DS...
Maggots commented on Nintendo Download: 1st March 2012 (Europe):
soooooo..... when can i download this for free on my 3DS as I've already bought it on the Wii? .... don't tell me... when the Wii U launches... del that better happen now...!
Maggots commented on Japan Gets Super Street Fighter II with Online...:
where have i been... this is news to me
Maggots commented on Nintendo Rejects The Binding of Isaac:
its a crappy game with virtually no market for it... why would they even consider it when it has a smaller demographic than the last story... And they won't even publish that one here in the states.... think about it...
Maggots commented on Nintendo and Radio Disney Team Up for Mario Pa...:
they should team up and make a dang MARIO WORLD theme park already
Maggots commented on Wii U Controller Originally Had Proper Analogu...:
When I played it at e3 it felt wonderful. ... no sticks needed... also about the touch screen... the technology exists to have multi touch resistive touch screen... (Stylus Touch Screen) that would be the best as it would be compatible with ANY iPad game... but still use a stylus which is WAY better for drawing and touching and stuff...
Maggots commented on Wii Motion Gaming Won't Guarantee Better Fitness:
well this is 6 years too late... So everyone join me in saying... "Who Cares" ... to those who study nonsense...
Maggots commented on Next Smash Bros. Development Starts with a Loo...:
Packaged Double Smash Bros game... Wii U version with a slot for the 3DS version bundled in... Both games one case ... one price $59.99
Maggots commented on Talking Point: Achievements, Trophies and Wii U:
I think the 3DS should have system aceivements itself... not just for games or street passes... like take 1000 pictures... make 50 sounds... walk 10 miles... play 30 different 3DS retail Games... register 25 friends locally.. stuff like that
Maggots commented on Review: F1 2011 (3DS):
@Slapshot sad but true
Maggots commented on Talking Point: 3DS Depends on Nintendo Titles ...:
If third party developers would actually try... and take a chance on actually putting effort into a game... then they might sell better... I feel no sympathy.... look at ace combat 3D... IT'S NOT EVEN ON SHELVES IN STORES!!!... IT'S LIKE THEY DoN"T WANT IT TO SELL WELL.... ... i'm really bugged by devs
Maggots commented on North America, You Get the MGS 3D Demo Tomorro...:
im glad we always find out 3 days later than everyone... at E3 i bet they give japanese and european release dates for the wii U and then 3 weeks later NOA confirms it for america... this is really starting to bug me...
Maggots commented on RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D Hits the Skids:
i'd buy it
Maggots commented on Ace Mathician is Goodbye Galaxy's Next DSiWare...:
i'll say it again... Stop making DSi ware games... ... make 3DS games.
Maggots commented on Analyst Claims eShop Made $11 Million in 2011:
wasn't excite bike free for a while?
Maggots commented on Super Mario Bros. for Ambassadors Just Got VC ...:
it would be very nice if the 3DS displayed updates like an iphone did... and then you tap... "update all" and then they all update..
Maggots commented on Mario Sneakers Are Perfect for Jumping Platforms:
i'm still wanting marty mcfly's nikes
Maggots commented on Skylanders Developer "Looking at Wii U NFC Tec...:
@rjejr ... they could still probably play with the Wii U controller being the portal of power for all players... in fact I bet on the Wii U version there could be up to 4 people at once... place all 4 characters on the Wii U tablet controller... and use the Wii remotes to play as those characters. Problem solved.
Maggots commented on Kirby's Dream Land 2 On the Way to Japanese eShop:
my favorite kirby
Maggots commented on See, Kids? Sonic and Mario Weren't Always Friends:
Sega was the SONY of the 90's... biggest douche bag companies ever...
Maggots commented on Push Square is Open for Business!:
hey nice... no. not really... no... it's not nice...
Maggots commented on THQ Could Lose Stock Market Listing:
@11 DUDE YES... WHAT WAS I THINKING... i think that's what i meant all along
Nintendo BUY THQ and Make them your New RARE
Maggots commented on Wii U to Get Online User Accounts:
@Darkrai ... YES... My Nintendo Network Name will be 8474-1983-1899-1373-1876-3084-9632-1059_maggots_9135_the_8321_face_ha_ha_this_is_for_complaining_about_friend_codes_like_an_idiot2012
Maggots commented on Talking Point: NFC and the Latest Wii U Wizardry:
okay... all that stuff is nifty.... but heres the gold mine... POKEMON CARDS ... much like the show yu-gi-oh... you place the cards on the tablet and an on screen battle happens... (even yu gi oh cards i guess would be nifty) ... Skylanders could be built in... and then I'd only have to buy the game.. and the toys... not the portal... this could be the nintendo "eReader" (not the magazine application)... remember that thing for the GBA? buy cards and new levels/powerups and all sorts of stuff for all types of games.... the idea was awesome and only failed because it was an add on... this is built in right from the start!!! this could be AWESOME!
Maggots commented on Konami Dissolving Hudson Soft:
i'm surprised they lasted this long
Maggots commented on Tiger Woods, Your Time on Wii is Over:
